Toontrack Routing Issue

King Burton

Recommended Posts

Did the DREADED and SEVERELY DESPISED Cakewalk update and now Toontrack (EZD 2 & SD2) drums stopped working. Uninstalled Cakewalk and Toontrack, fresh re-install. Same issue. What I see is a routing issue. Cakewalk track route choices show 1L or 1R or 1L/R. etc. and so on for each. However, Drum prog channel route shows Channel 1, Channel 2, etc.

Clearly no one is talking together.

Dug thu preferences and all is correct. Scan/re-scan VST ~20 times.

This UPGRADE feature has costed me a week of no production. Anybody have an idea how to fix?

Do not use 32bit Toontrack plug-ins (as shown in the image above) in 64bit DAWs.

They are known to cause problems.

Toontrack only supports their 64bit plug-ins in 64bit hosts.

This has been the case since Toontrack released its first 64bit plug-ins years ago.


In general, when running a 64bit host,

  • unless there is a problem with the 64bit plug-in, use the 64bit version when both 32 and 64bit versions are available.
  • avoid using 32bit plug-ins as they are often long out of support relying on outdated technology.

The image in the OP shows SD2 loaded in BitBridge.


Steve, Please explain where you see SD2 is loaded in BitBridge. 

I'm using the screen shot and your response as a way to better understand what is displayed in the screen shot and I'm not seeing the BitBridge connection you see.

Wow! KILLER ANSWER!!!! Yup, 64b in a 32b = FAIL.    AMAZING!!   Scook - speaks to your answer.

Begs the Qs: What could I have done in a Cakewalk upgrade to cause that?  How to load VSTs without bitbridge involvement?

(Got SD2 working but EZD2 64b crashes Win11. - BUT I don't know if bitbridge is the culprit there. Will experiment.)
